Our 2018 project. We got there in the end! Living on a hill our garage floor was two feet lower than the house. It has never been used as a garage (too small for modern cars) but has made a great store room since we moved here over 40 years ago.
It did not even have a door on when we moved here and Alan set about building a double door for security and having an integral door built into the hall for access.
As the garage door needed replacing again it seemed the right time to raise the floor and turn it into a 'proper' room.
Two of our dear friends took on the work and all Alan was left with was the painting.
